MIKE’S HAM RADIO PAGE

MIKE’S HAM RADIO PAGE!

WD8NEJ

 

This page isn’t for everyone. In fact, if you’re not into Amateur (Ham) Radio, you will find this stuff somewhat esoteric. This is just another one of my life-long expensive hobbies I can always count on to drain my checking account from time to time! J  The other expensive hobbies I’ve been into for years are horses and motorcycles, all of which combined will very quickly drain not only your checking but savings account too! Since I’ve retired, I only am involved in two right now, horses and ham radio, having sold my motorcycle a while back (this will last until I get the “fever” again).  I hold an “Extra” Class Amateur Radio license, which is the highest one you can get. It was tough to get and the test was very difficult (a lot of electronic theory and 20 words per minute of Morse Code), but I managed to do it about 10 years ago. This page will be “Under Construction” for a while…

MY STATION... A YAESU FT-757GX. I'VE TALKED ALL OVER THE WORLD ON THIS THING. BEEN LICENSED SINCE 1976 AND THIS IS ONLY MY 2ND "RIG".  GOT THIS USED IN 1987.
MY PRESENT ANTENNA. GOT THIS "OUTBACKER" ANTENNA  FROM AUSTRALIA. I USED TO HAVE ALL KINDS OF ANTENNAS ON THE ROOF, BUT GETTING TOO OLD TO HAVE ANY AMBITION TO CLIMB ANYMORE!  LOOKS LIKE A UFO HAS LANDED OUTSIDE MY PATIO DOOR DOESN'T IT!!!
